NUGS 2018-19

UPDATE: March, 2019

With some much appreciated interest and effort NUGS Head Coach Tony Morris has resurrected an old tradition of a NUGS-Post team. The NUGS are once again truly a Pre-Post Team playing a Post-Season tournament in Cleveland the weekend of March 21-23, 2019. Best of luck to NUGS-Post in 2019 and hats off to Coach Morris for bringing the post season tradition back!

2019 NUGS Post Team Goes 3-1 in Cleveland!

The NUGS Post Team, revived in 2019 by Head Coach Tony Morris after a nearly decade long hiatus, finished 3-1(!) in the Rock-N-Roll Cup Tournament in Cleveland, OH March 22-24, 2019.  The NUGS opened the weekend with a rocking 4-3 victory over Stick-Fix Cleveland AA on Friday, and on Saturday rolled over the Pittsburg Huskies A Major 6-4 and the Ohio Prospects A/AA 6-2.  The NUGS battled with the Cleveland Sharks AA and had a 3-3 tie going with 4 minutes left in the final game, but fell 3-6 with two empty net goals tacked on at the end.

Overall it was a fantastic showing for the NUGS against some very solid competition from Ohio and Pennsylvania select teams.  Great work team, and a special thanks to Coach Morris for his efforts!
